Abstract

Sculptures depicting angels, created in the 19th century in an unknown sculpture workshop. According to the iconographic tradition, these creatures are dressed in tunics tied with a belt and depict young men with masculine facial features. Their feet are bare, which symbolises the readiness to carry out divine orders. They have wings indicating the speed of moving from place to place.
